Sunday Afternoon Fun



We've been cleaning out the freezer to get ready for our trip to Michigan and a bag of shrimp needed to go. Fresh Spring Rolls was the perfect way and, oh, they were so good! Juliana has been all about cake lately. She requested a white cake, with sprinkles, and not from the bakery. OK, little girl, here is one straight from Martha. It was a great Sunday picnic after some pool time!

Biking at the Park




{Green Heron, Butorides virescens}

We made sure to hit the park in the morning while it was still cool. We saw the usual suspects at the pools and had a good time zooming around the park. These kids are getting their legs ready for biking around Big Twin Lake

Drawing with Cassie



We had a picnic at Cassie and Britton's place today. Juliana and Pieter saw Cassie's notebook and got her drawing with them without much encouragement. They love her! I have forgotten what all the things in the drawing mean. Maybe we can get Cassie to comment on this.

Determination










Hmm... some play at the beach while Papa collects seaglass. Gone are the days of throwing rocks off the bridge with Papa. Or little rocks into the stream with Mama. Let's just aim for throwing a 20' bamboo off a pier into the Atlantic Ocean! Good thing he has a little helper, for at least part of it.

Coco and the Flower Pots


Coco has found the perfect place for a dust bath. I lament my mint...

A Special Day for Mama









{love their handprints!}


I'd been wanting to have breakfast at The English Rose for a while and thought that Mothers Day was the perfect time to make that request. This place is always busy on the weekends, with reservations needed, so I was pretty happy that we got one for Sunday with just calling ahead on Saturday. I think we got the best table in the place, right at the edge of the balcony with such a great view. We figured it must have been Kanu karma, has this is where our sweet, fiesty kitty's previous home was. 

After eating we met up with our friends, Cassie and Britton, for some beach time. We enjoyed the tidepools at Las Palmas. Cassie and the kids made a special present for me! I loved it! Pieter was wondering the day before what he would make for me and he figured it out. And the kids always have a lot of fun digging in the sand with Britton. He is a pro at tunnels. It was a really nice day, all in all.

Field Trip!






Today we met our homeschool group at the Cabo Rojo National Wildlife Refuge Center for a tour and hike. We stopped by the center in February and enjoyed the displays. It was built very recently and has a nice trail through the scrub land to a lookout tower. Pieter ran the whole way there, but was dragging on the way back. Juliana? Well, it was a piggy back ride on mom most of the way.

Pool Fun in Aguadilla








What a fun day! Today our playgroup met at the Marriott in Aguadilla. Oh, these kids are sleeping hard right now. We got there at 9:30AM and didn't leave until 3:00PM. Their only break was lunch, poolside. And, oh, those hotdogs were good! Myself? I had some amazing chicken mofongo. I was very impressed with the service and food at the restaurant. We are definitely going to come here again!
